<p>
libwpd is a library used to convert Wordperfect documents into other
formats.
</p>
</background>
<description>
<p>
libwpd contains heap-based overflows in two functions that convert
WordPerfect document tables. In addition, it contains an integer
overflow in a text-conversion function.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
An attacker could entice a user to convert a specially crafted
WordPerfect file, resulting in a crash or possibly the execution of
arbitrary code with the rights of the user running libwpd.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All libwpd users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=app-text/libwpd-0.8.9&quot;</code>
</resolution>
